Wake up that sleeper: The Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé

I’m back with another Mercedes and this time, it’s one of their more serious offerings that I’m reviewing – the Mercedes-AMG C63 S Coupé. As you can guess from the name, this bubble-top two-door is no slouch – it’s a C-class given the special treatment by the automaker’s high-performance division. But with a price tag that starts from … Continue Reading

5 things you didn’t know about the cable knit jumper

Let’s talk about the cable-knit jumper. It’s warm and fuzzy and it’s one of those things you never really get to see much living in Dubai. You probably have the vague idea of it originating in some cold place due to the warmth it offers, but other than that it’s just another piece of clothing … Continue Reading

A week with the Mercedes-Benz SL 400

If you know me in person, you’d probably be familiar with my taste in cars. I want no more than two doors and two seats, ideally.

Swatch forays into serious watch territory with all-metal Sistem 51

I’ve repeated myself at least a hundred times here and on social media about what I consider a watch worthy of my time.

Gents’ Weekend at the Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah

It’s not often that I get any R&R on the weekends. Like most other bloggers, I keep a day job to fund my clothing and car expenses (the two biggest chunks of the pie, actually) and then keep all blogging-related work for the weekends. So when I was invited to an exclusive gentleman’s weekend at … Continue Reading

5 benefits of wearing linen all year round

The year-round Dubai jacket is… made of linen. There, I said it. I know we Middle East inhabitants kid ourselves about the change of seasons – perhaps to rationalize and even justify our fashion purchases – but there really is no jacket or blazer fabric that you can get more value from in terms of cost per use … Continue Reading

Dubai to Georgia: Tbilisi’s most photogenic tourist traps

I know I had already announced that I was going on a two-week trip to Schengenland on my social media platforms, but sometimes things do not happen as you we want them to.
